My post for the 2010 event
I already got my ticket, so hopefully I will see you there. I can feel the sickness coming for that day… I may have to call out of work ( I work nights ).

Same price as last year: $35. It’s a lot, but you probably will never have a sampling like this again in your life. This year, Robert Sietsema AND Sarah DiGregorio pick the restaurants to be featured at the extravaganza. Should be an interesting affair.

What am I looking forward to?
Sheep Station
Momofuku Milk Bar & Bakery
Peppa’s Jerk Chicken
Urban Rustic Garden
Nomad
Among many others…
—- What are some standouts in your mind?

Last year was great. I think I sampled every place. I was stuffed at the end. Very stuffed. Even got to meet the collaborator himself.

  1. It’s actually just “Urban Rustic” no “Garden” in the name, although they do have a back patio! :)

  2. Considering that most tasting events in the city are $100+, this event is a real deal, esp considering they include alcohol! I love that they introduced a VIP ticket this year because the line to get in was unreal last year and all the pushing/shoving/cutting in line was out of control. Let’s hope restaurants actually bring enough food this year – there were a few last year that just sucked and left an hour into things when they ran out of food – boo!

  3. [...] See my review from last year. [...]

  4. i’m american and i don’t reenmmcod doing all those things they are telling you to do like eating mcdonalds, having guns, and acting dumb.. that is not what america is about! these people are just telling you that to get entertainment out of it. it is about being able to be yourself and pursue whatever goals you wanna pursue in life. for example, if you come from a poor family and you have the dream of becoming a successful scientist one day, then you can! also we share a lot of cultures here

  5. There really isn’t a way to be more American ..except for, I guess, tyirng to be more American. If there’s one thing Americans are good at, it’s wanting to make everyone more like us.
